The University of Florida’s Office of Professional and Workforce Development (OPWD) is proud to be selected as a Host Training Organization (HTO) for OSHA courses offered by the OSHA Training Institute (OTI) Education Center at Volunteer State Community College (VSCC.). The goal of OSHA courses is to reduce workplace fatalities and injuries by teaching the application of OSHA standards in hazard recognition and prevention.
Virtual learning has expanded in many ways during the Covid-19 pandemic. Now, staff members at Volunteer State Community College are taking virtual teaching techniques and applying them to a new audience, one that is well outside the usual focus of Middle Tennessee. Vol State is home to an OTIEC (OSHA Training Institute Education Center). OSHA health and safety training organized by Vol State reaches companies and employees across the southeast United States. A program is taking that education global as part of a U.S. Army Europe training initiative.
